Personal profile


Nima received a Ph.D. degree in transportation engineering from the Technical University of Istanbul, Turkey. In 2017, he has joined the Traffic Technical Institute (TTI) of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia as a researcher and teaching assistant. Between 2018 and 2021, he has been working as a researcher in two EU Interreg funded projects namely MUSE and EN-IN, and many local traffic/transportation projects. Since 2019, he is acting as Management Committee (MC) Member from Slovenia, in EU COST Action CA16222: Wider Impacts and Scenario Evaluation of Autonomous and Connected Transport.

He is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Portsmouth (UK) where he is leading the "Travel Behavior Change Modeling" workstream for the FTZ Mobility-as-a-Service project (DfT funded) in the Solent region.
